1971-72 Mike Lewis ABA Pittsburgh Condors Game-Used Home Jersey
Onside the left back tail of the jersey is the "Rawlings" manufacturer's tag with the size "46". To its right is the "L" tag representing "long" and to the right of that is the wash tag. Sewn onto the front of the jersey is the beautiful red, white, blue, and gold Condors embroidered logo patch, which is one of the nicest and most colorful patches we have ever seen. This patch was only present on their home jerseys, and only for the 1971-72 season before they were folded. A white tackle twill nameplate with the player name "LEWIS" sewn on in gold tackle twill appears on the back of the jersey. The player number "24" has been sewn onto the front and back of the jersey in gold on red tackle twill. The jersey shows game use and appears to have no alterations of any kind. Simply magnificent and rare as can be!
Notes: Such a jersey is incredibly rare because the ABA gave most of the Pittsburgh Condors' equipment to the prison basketball league at upstate New York's Attica Prison after folding the team in 1972.
